The Butcher's Market Restaurant Review

: Tom McDaniel, who grew up in Decatur, operates a small market that purveys not only fresh and cured meats (we recommend the huge smoked pork chops), but also fresh vegetables, homemade soups, and barbecue on the weekends, among other goodies. That’s when the smoker outside starts to perfume the neighborhood with the aromas of smoking meat. Sandwiches, piled with pulled pork or pulled beef brisket, are all made to order, Ribs, either spare or baby-backs, are glorious, tender but not mushy, with that tell-tale pinkness that confirms their having been smoked (not oven cooked). Typically, they’ll come with McDaniel’s good barbecue sauce slathered thereon, but they may be ordered with sauce on the side if you wish. But the star of the show may well be the aforementioned pulled beef brisket, moistened with McDaniel’s house-made “cocktail,” as he calls it. No alcohol.
